Say hello to my gourd! I've had it for a year.
A full 12 months of tiny pumpkin! And yes, it's real. I bought it at Trader Joe's for 69 cents (or maybe it was a dollar, I don't remember) and it's still around. To be fair, it's finally getting a little soft if you squeeze it, but there's not any discoloration, mold, or other weird growths happening. It looks exactly as it did the day I bought it.
I think it's awesome, but Hubsey is grossed out and doesn't want me to get another one. I might buy one anyway, but to humor him I've also been looking at alternative decorations:
Adorable candy corn embroidery, $18, set of three felt pumpkins (that will never go bad), $22.25, a charming felt flower wreath, $40, and fun fabric bunting, $25.
Are your fall decorations out yet? Do you do much seasonal decorating?
